I don’t want to face you guys at all. This is the first wallbot I’ve seen that can do towers to. This is OP.

One concern I have is that your bot seems to be incapable of building stacks alone. Hopefully at the level of play you’ll be at from this point onwards that won’t be a problem!

Yes, but build alone? That’s the issue all tower bots face all season. And especially when they’re under heavy defense. But I suppose your godly driving can do something in that protection game.

Nice robot and reveal video! One quick question: Does the wall affect autonomous at all (because it looks like the wall deploy is tied to the lift raising up)?

My mentor showed me a robot that has 3 cascade lifts, 2 to wall, and one to score towers. I am terrified. Cool Robot

This is the coolest robot ive seen all year. Why build one robot when you can basically build 2?

The main problem with wall bots is that they are easy to block because you can just stay near the goal, blocking the wall. That’s why I abandoned my wall + traybot at the beginning of the season. Even if the wall bot has a good driver and a fast drive, If you stay in the middle of the protected zone they usually can’t deploy properly.

Here’s a rebuttal: if a robot has to stay in the protected zone to block the wall, they can’t score anything. Seems like a tradeoff, either stay in the protected zone to block the wall and not do anything, or go out to get cubes and get walled.
